We’re looking into smart appliances and whether they’re worth the extra money compared with standard domestic products. Do you have an experience to share?
Appliances, especially large white goods such as fridge freezers, dishwashers and washing machines, are considered to be standard products that you use in your home.
But ‘smart’ appliances are growing in popularity; domestic products with internet connectivity that can be controlled remotely, typically through an app on your mobile device.
These connected appliances cost more than their average non-smart equivalent due to the added tech perks.
But are these perks worth shelling out more for?
Smart appliances do have the benefit of allowing you to more conveniently use and communicate with your product.
For example, you can start a wash cycle through the app from your bed on a Sunday morning or check the contents of your fridge while you’re shopping.
However, as with all products, there can be problems – faults with the product itself or its smart functionality failing aren’t exactly unheard of.
